Question Average gas Mileage

Hi Everyone

I picked up a 2014 mustang V6 a few months ago and I haven't gotten the advertised gas mileage as stated on Fords website. Is anyone else getting close to the avertised gas mileage? Right now it keeps changing from 14 and 15L per 100km (I'm in Canada) and I drive mostly on the streets. I just want to know what others are getting, thanks!

That's about right, if you do mostly stop and go city driving where you do a lot of idleing.
Also do you get up to speed quickly or take your time?

This has absolutely nothing to do with the 3.7L v6 cars or helps the OP in any way.

The Car is rated at 19 MPG city driving it real conservatively, not knowing how fast you accelerate or what gear you cruise around in I can't really help on that.. You are still getting over 15 1/2 MPG, mine will drop down to 16 of 17 if I stay in town after filling up.

Taking it really easy (95% of the time) in the suburbs, little to no highway, I managed to average about 22 MPG (10.7 L per 100km). Although I don't think that will last much longer. I was just trying to see how good I could do.

My car is a 2013 V6 base model.
I haven't checked every tank but when I've checked I got:
21 mpg city,
26 mpg combined city/highway,
27 highway with a high percentage of steep grades up and down (going through the Salt River Canyon),
31 mpg highway with mostly level grade optimum conditions.

How many miles are on it? My 2013 V6 went over 4000 miles before getting the expected mpg.

Fuel mileage is extremely subjective. Driving style, driving area, road surfaces, temperatures, humidity, % ethanol in the fuel and only a few dozen other variables come into play. Asking about your fuel mileage is like asking how long you're going to live.

The EPA mpg on the sticker is derived from testing the vehicle using NON ETHANOL fuel.

Since most fuel is 10% Ethanol your mpg will be lower than that stated on the sticker.

I am fortunate that I can buy (30 cents/ gallon more) non ethanol fuel.

Not entirely true!
EPA’s test fuel does not currently contain any ethanol or other oxygenates. However, EPA does account for the impact of low-level ethanol blends in their fuel economy estimates. Ethanol has a lower energy density than gasoline—about 1/3 less energy per gallon. That means a car operating on 10% ethanol would require about 3% more fuel to travel one mile than a car operating on gasoline and thus have about 3% lower fuel economy. EPA currently reduces all fuel economy test values by about 10% to account for ethanol in gasoline and other factors such as wind, hills, and road conditions.

Default I generly average around 24 to 26 around town

That is stomping on it every now & then.
If I don't stomp on the gas at all I get around 27 or better.
I just went on a 2,126 mile round trip to the American Muscle show and from Daytona to Maple Grove and back to Daytona I got this.
This is written down and better then the liar on the dash claimed I was getting.

My guage on the computer never went past 27 MPG for the whole trip. I did this by writing it down.

Ronnie - how the heck do you get 24 - 26 around town? All I do is in-town driving and I'm getting 16.8.

Default I just drive normal most of the time.

I use 87 octane all the time. BJ's , Shell, Sunoco. Sometimes Sam's club gas. My Mustang has always got good MPG.
The first time I went to the AM show in Pa. I got 34 MPG for the round trip. I did not hit as much traffic or do any hill driving. My car had less then 100 miles on it when I left. I did drive slower at around 65 or 70 most of the time then because my car was brand new. I have not got that good since then but I'm really happy with what I get. I did have Magnafow streets but not the Airaid at that time. I'm talking pen and paper and not the computer which never gets over 27/28 most of the time. I don't ever remember it ever going over 28. It is usually at 24 almost all of the time.
Ronnie

I have found that mid grade fuel pay for itself. Here in NC mid grade is generally under 8% over regular in cost and I regularly add 10% to the mileage

daily commute is 100-120 miles, All highway, every day, pretty flat, 70 mph..28-31 mpg

I found the same results with my 3.8L also. And that running premium offered no increase over the midgrade.

2013 V6 with many bolt on mods, running 91H bama tune. I stomp on it once or twice per 30km average trip and I get 10.8 L/100km. I say tune your new baby up and you won't be sorry, because for the first couple of months I had my car stock, it got 14.2 L/100km on 87 octane.

He said he is getting about 21.7 MPG, and they converted to the Metric System starting in the Early 70's and finished in the early to mid 80's if I remember right.
